This website is scam , the information provided are not clear enough. They offer 100% guaranteed but they won't honor. Do not call they will over charge ,they continue charging your credit card without you agreeing to the charges. Its 30 min for 30 dollars which would give you the impression of prepaid system but you end of paying 84 for 5 min. Never call them, rude costumer service they are trained to not assist.
I was sucked into this company after speaking to three different psychics. First it was Wren then Christina and finally DIVA got a lot of money from me and I am talking in the thousands of double digits.
I was also told by the customer service director NYDIA to hang in there and be positive because she had used a psychic 11 years ago and it worked for her and they helped millions with the same situations.
After expressing disgust I was contacted by an attorney saying I was harassing NYDIA the customer service director. The attorney as well as NYDIA refused to let me speak to anyone but them about the situation and wanted fame because she had refunded a few thousand because of my disgust but this was only after spending a lot of money so a few thousand doesn't mean anything to me.
I was always told at the end of the reading that I would need to continue because we were making progress to call back in which I did because I was scared it wouldn't end well for me. Lets just say after a month and going into debt I finally figured out the scam. BUT, they do not post all the reviews only the good ones because they know they are a fraud and don't want to be exposed.
They including NYDIA don't care about you or your situation. They only want that extra dollar on their paychecks from screwing hard earned money out of people whom are desperate to change their situations.
THEY ARE FRAUDS!! I actually borrowed money to continue these reading after I went through my savings. I am not saying using psychics don't work because I don't know but I do know this company didn't work for me and only care about themselves. Nydia also listened into the conversations that I had with DIVA and used that against me with threats on cocreation.
I still to this day have been able to speak to anyone but her and I refused to. I was also contacted by NYDIA on her cell phone with threats and intimidation instead of her contacting me on a recorded line where the conversations were recorded.
WHY? because she doesn't want her attorney or her boss to know that she was threatening me and cohering me to continue something she knew wasn't going to work out in my favor. If this is the way a business is run, and you are not allowed to speak to someone other than the person you have issues with it should be illegal and NYDIA retaliated against me when I expressed my concerns. They including NYDIA have basically stolen my nest egg, confidence in people and businesses like this and my hope in humanity.
Does NYDIA care? NOPE I'm sure she got a big bonus's They have refused to refund me anything and probably never will but at least people will be made aware of my situation and will hopefully go elsewhere. So, NYDIA and this company can take the money they stole from me and shove it where the sun don't shine because they have gotten all my savings and won't get any further thoughts of mine.
Hopefully this review will reach their potential customers and they will go somewhere else or decide against using this service. Sad they won't post all the reviews so that people can make their own opinions about this company.
Do not use ask now or even attempt to get results using nydia, the director or customer service when you have genuine concerns or complaints because you won't get anywhere except threatened and and bullied by her!!
I have yet to get a true refund and probably never will and it was a very hard learned lesson!! I just hope nydia and her frauds enjoy their bonuses on the money that I was screwed out of!!
Read with Clarissa multiple times.. she swore a person in question would come back into my life and it would be permanent.. well I found out today he got engaged to another girl... funny she never saw that coming... don't waste your money... they are all phoneys - all that I have talked to on there...
I am commenting here just to say that anyone seeking psychic advice is much better off evaluating their current situation and ask themselves if the money isn't better spent taking a vacation, investing in something for themselves or paying off debt.
I want to stress one important reality. There are people reporting amazing predictions here. But there are just as many who report failed predictions. It's kind of like taking your money to the casino and expecting to win big. You might, but you won't necessarily. And more often than not, you'll lose what you gamble.
A psychic cannot bring back a deceased family member. A psychic cannot bring back an ex-lover or partner. A psychic cannot bring you guarantees of fortune. They can't do it for themselves, so they can't do it for you.
There are certain things psychics can work with to make it seem that they are intuitive, and in some ways they are intuitive. But you are the one who is making them intuitive. Notice when a psychic tells you that you are very intuitive yourself? They are telling you 1) to trust them because they build your confidence and 2) you are in fact giving them all the information they need to read you.
As humans, we like to think we are all special, unique and have different experiences than others. But in the grand scheme of things, all of these experiences are not so different to the experience of others'.
Here's are some examples: how many people do you know who have been in a relationship which ended because someone in the relationship cheated, or met someone else? How many people break up and get back together, at least temporarily? How many people lose their jobs? Find new ones? Have a pet die?
These are pretty common situations that psychics hear over and over again.
One other interesting thing is this: people who contact psychics almost always want to find out if a person they love will come back to them. But they know in their hearts that this person isn't good for them. They know this and yet they want to know if they will come back to them! On the other hand, when there is someone who is good for them and is around, no one contacts a psychic. Why would you?
It seems to me that people want to find out from a psychic about a person who absolutely does not respect them or does not care about them. The story is almost the same for the psychic every time.
Man breaks up with woman. Man cheats on woman. They have some possibilities and probabilities to work with. And they are banking on most people having a reading and never returning. Either way, they get paid.
Some psychics have become elevated schemers by convincing you they have high success rates and do things to keep you coming back to them., and making you dependent on them.
At the end of this, you'll be out of a lot of money and wish you never ever consulted a psychic. You will count all the money spent and sincerely regret it.
And you will feel worse off about your situation because more often than not the psychic will give you bad advice. A psychic will more often tell you to wait for someone - they will come back. Their timeframes will be off, and you'll forgive them with rationalizing about timeframes being difficult to predict. DUHH. No one in this world can predict timeframes for any future event with any kind of consistency, let alone whether the event will even take place!
But sadly, for you, you will end up losing money, waiting and being stuck in a situation you could have moved on from and live a healthy productive life. Instead, you became financially and emotionally enslaved to the psychic.
Ask yourself this: will you be able to talk to the psychic without paying? If your situation was so dire, where will said psychic be to help you?
Promise yourself one thing now and forever. Do not consult a psychic. There is absolutely no reason to do so and nothing truly good comes of it.
And remember. AskNow does not post negative reviews. So you're only seeing positive reviews and most of those aren't even reliable. But ... they got your money.
I talked to the psychic on that site Ryan and he was supposed to put a spell on my ex to make her fall in love with me and not keep asking me to buy her stuff. After he put the voodoo spell on my ex all my other exes started calling me like crazy but not her. They still wanted me to buy them stuff, though. Even though I bought my ex a Vidal Sassoon curling iron, Lululemon leotards and Coach purse!!!!!!!!!! She won't call and I did the namaste stuff and lit the candles. I took a bath in rose petals like they told me but she still won't call me and blocked me from her Facebook. and Instagram. Now that the protective order has been lifted I need the spell to work BIG TIME. I'll let you know.
I really was hesitant about this service because of some of the reviews I had seen but went ahead and tried it. I have to say that it was my first time calling the service and I was really nervous. The psychic was actually pretty good about seeing my past and my history regarding my ex but I have to say, I didn't see her predictions coming true for a VERY long time. I decided that nothing was going to happen the way she said. Low and behold, two years later, the things she predicted about me and my ex started to happen. I'm happy I held out but I think that two years was too long and she should have had her guides make it happen faster.
No matter how much you tell people this, they will continue to throw their hard earned money away at charlatans.
No one can reliably and consistently predict the future. If they could, they surely would not be working for a hotline alongside 'fakes'.
People are predictable to an extent. And people who consult psychics are even more predictable. They come with love, relationship, money or health issues. And so-called psychics learn how to pick up on these patterns and make guesses about your past and your present.
Unfortunately, for people who consult them, psychics are just guessing when they predict the future. So when it happens as they predicted, they take credit for it. When it doesn't happen the way they predicted, they tell you that free will can come into play. Or that you control your future and you affected the outcome.
So to make it simple, they do not see the future. They do not see what the other person is thinking or feeling.
If you are talking to psychics, you need to stop giving your money away to these shysters. Your biggest problem is not your relationship issues or job issues. It's your addiction to predictions. You and only you determine your future. No one can tell it to you.
So, please stop. And please stop trusting people who tell you how good a reader is. Even if they are "good", they're still just guessing. All these great psychics would famous the world over if they are that good. They would be hired by police departments or companies. They're not. They work in a hotline that charges outrageous per minute fees to YOU.
While everyone else is living their lives, you're giving yours away to these soothsayers. What if their predictions don't happen? You come out with major disappointment, major loss of money and the psychics will not be there to help you or give you your money back.
It is for entertainment purposes only. Personally, I can think of 100 different ways to entertain myself spending far less money than what it costs to talk to a psychic.
Clarissa is Great ! Told me a prediction and it came to pass...Currently waiting on another !!
I have my favorites on AskNow, who are Denny and Clarissa. The first time I called the service I spoke with Clarissa and she literally made me cry because she picked up on so many things. 6 months later and everything she predicted on that first reading has come to pass. She has weird hours so I find myself chatting with Denny quite a bit, as well. He eases my mind and he has predicted many things accurately, as well. I'm not sure why this weirdo "Professor" person has chosen to take over this review site and has commented over 32 times about the same thing over and over and over and over but he should see a therapist about his obsessive compulsive behavior. Who lives on a review site like that? Obsess much? I feel sorry for psychics who have to talk to people like him.
All calls are recorded for quality assurance purposes.
Need I say more? They record your call. Which means they can listen to the calls. They can share that info. And boom. You're blown away by the psychic who is scary accurate.
I started using the AskNow website last year after a bad experience with Keen psychics. I spoke with Quasha. She was really good. I was in the middle of some drama with my now ex and she was able to provide me with some solid information (where the woman worked, where they met) that I later verified regarding the girl he was cheating on me with. Talking to Quasha is like talking to an awesome therapist who can fill in details psychically. I think she is a counselor when she is not working with AskNow. I've also spoken with psychic JC who was really nice, Psychic Clarissa - Whose predictions came to pass just like she said they would, Love Expert Wren who seems to always know what I'm about to tell her lol and a few others. Calling this company has been a positive experience for me. FYI- I did not like Aicha Ashley at all and she seemed to need a lot of information but I don't see her on the site anymore so I can't include her in my review.
OK folks. I hope my feedback here will help many people looking for answers FINALLY get the ANSWER THEY DESERVE. Ready?
THERE ARE NO PSYCHICS!
When you talk to a 'psychic', you are talking to someone who knows how to push certain buttons that will get you to open up to them and reveal information without realizing that you do.
When someone calls a 'psychic', they do so for specific reasons:
- they want to know about a love interest or relationship issue
- they want to know about their financial prospects
- they want to know about their or a loved one's health
- they want to know about a loved one who has passed on
So here's the thing...there are essentially 4 issues people call a psychic about which I have listed above. There may be even more reasons, but even if there are, we can take all these and group them into three categories:
A psychic can focus on any or all of these 3 and wow you with some statement which is true for you. Wanna know why? Because, HELLO, we are not all snowflakes! We all have love, money and health issues. We are human.
Now, some of you will say we are all unique and she told you something that no one else could have known. Let me tell you that biologists study humans and animals and can find near identical patterns in the way we think, live, eat, socialize and so on. We aren't really all that different.
When your guy or girl has left you, or you broke up with them and now regret doing so, or he/she cheats on you, or whatever...
'Psychics' have heard thousands of such stories. Looking at one of the psychics on AskNow, I see she has read more than 12,000 times. Another has read more than 43,000 times!
Do you think that after speaking to people that many times about the SAME issues, some patterns might emerge? Of course they will.
Depending also how the person is reacting to their situation, patterns will emerge. So if you were dumped by your ex and behaved non-needy, started dating someone else, there's a pretty good chance your ex is going to take notice and at some point, contact you. If they contact you, there's a good chance they want to reconnect. If they don't contact you, then it's over. But the patterns will reveal themselves after giving so many readings.
Likewise, if you are depressed about your breakup, acting needy and chasing your ex, there's a good chance they will be annoyed and move on quickly. Not too hard to predict.
Money? Well if you don't have money issues, you would not be calling. Just like if you were happy in your relationship. Of course, there are exceptions, but again, even the exceptions will present patterns.
Health? Same thing.
Now, I know a barrage of Clarissa, Jozette, Selena and other psychic ambassadors will come out of the woodwork vouching for their psychic abilities and how their predictions are scary accurate. Even those comments I've seen here touting Savantace as the saviour will likely bring about some resistance to this post.
LISTEN CAREFULLY PLEASE. Their predictions come to pass because they can make a somewhat educated guess based on what you say (without realizing you said it), how you react or behave, and the gazillions of human patterns they have already witnessed.
And sorry to break this bit of extra news to you. If they're wrong, it's not because they didn't connect well with you. It's because they're wrong. They guessed. They guessed wrongly. That's it.
The various comments here are proof in themselves. One person claiming Clarissa was right. Another claiming she is wrong. Then Selena. Then Jozette. Then Wren. And so on.
Come on folks. Time to stop throwing your money and lives to these scheming frauds.
If you need help, and everyone does need help from time to time, get help from people who care about you and don't need $10 per minute which is really nothing short of FRAUD. $10 a minute are you kidding me?
Listen, if you really feel you need help, and want to pay for it, there are professionals who can help you for much less.
You are not a snowflake. 12,000 readings on one psychic website tells me that people have very similar patterns and many people keep repeating the patterns.
A true professional would help you overcome your challenges by focusing on improving yourself, and letting go of anything which does not serve you.
You are the architect of your own future. Right now. If all a psychic can do is tell you that you decide your own future and what she sees or predicts is a "path" right now, then you didn't need the reading in the first place. Not at $10 a minute.
You could easily just take out a notepad and ask yourselves what your possible paths are based on where you are right now, and what you can change about your situation if you take specific actions. Write those all down.
I once went to see an astrologer who made several predictions, all of which came true, including a few I refused to believe at the time. When I asked him how could he have known, he said quite plainly...
"I have no psychic powers. I've been doing this for 40 years."
That says it all. If you were so sure of the outcome yourself, you probably would not have contacted a psychic in the first place. So that element of doubt is what they begin to operate with. They know you're unsure. They get paid to make a prediction (guess). If they're right, you'll come back, and now you'll tell them everything - they no longer need to guess because they can combine all this information with their years of talking to 1000s of people. If they're wrong, you won't come back, and they keep the money you gave them.
You don't need psychics because there is no such thing as a psychic.
I have had readings with most of the readers mentioned on this site and Selena is the REAL THING! She knew absolutely everything I didn't expect anyone to know she was spot on with who I am and how I feel as a person she's amazing. Her predictions happened just like she said. Like clockwork. I thought there was no hope for me and the guy I had ended it with but she knew better. I also asked about another ex and she was brutally honest that there was no chance. Sure enough, his new gf announced her pregnancy on FB last week. She also predicted that I would win a small amount of money in November and I won $500 on my ticket! She has a gift that I have never seen anything like.
I had readings with Clarissa and Jozette. Both of their readings astonished me and I was amazed at how accurate both of them were without any prompting. Although Jozette was more expensive, I felt she was able to provide a more thorough reading which I could confirm. Clarissa also gave accurate backgrounds but not as thorough as Jozette, in my opinion.
In any case, both of them read my situation exactly the same, which flies in the face of what appears to be the case. This was another shock to me. I see one thing, they both say it's not as it appears to me. That's the 'unknown' you are depending on a psychic to uncover for you, I guess.
I'm still in shock at how both of them were extremely accurate about the persons involved and the situations, yet what they read contrasts what I see.
The tricky thing is their predictions are different. Clarissa sees something happening, Jozette doesn't see it happening. Clarissa says I should do nothing, and allow the prediction to come to pass, Jozette says if I want that outcome, I will have to do something to allow it to happen.
So...situation read is identical, outcome is different. I'm feel more in tune with Jozette, but I want to allow time for Clarissa's prediction to pass.
Sometimes, I think it's better if we don't consult psychics at all, and just live our lives. Sometimes I feel they can empower you with information that can help you move forward. Sometimes, they're just wrong.
I had read with Clarissa a few times and every time she gets the background and appearance of the person correct including my current standing with the person. one time her timeframe was a little off that i was going to start dating this guy and it didn't happen for a while but that was totally due to me and the decisions I had made.. I got a little short-tempered and crazy and made that guy back off but everything is okay now.
In essence what I'm trying to say is that Clarissa "predicts" your future and what she says from that day but a person's own actions and behavior reinforce the prediction. you make your own future, Clarissa just read it how she saw it play out. if she told you that you were going to be a successful millionaire next month and you went out and killed someone tomorrow, obviously your actions aren't gonna let that prediction pan out.
Dear anyone who might be concerned about this company. I have been a devoted customer of Asknow for many years. Some psychics are accurate and some are not, but i must say it has the worst customer service ever. Once they have got you in it will only take them a few years before they jam your account and bar you. Customer service is absolutely awful, if i could give it below 1* that would be an absolute overstatement. The women are especially rude and sarcastic, many of them telling you to avoid coming to the service, or calling you names which merely when you complain to the company they dare not respond. Purely by the lack of service or nice staff, it can make it a nightmare for anyone to get a reading from. You are meant to get 'answers' but instead you get a whirlwind of disaster, and an expenditure of thousands rolling down in your back account. They are too in demand by vulnerable people; they frankly don't care as long as they have money in their pocket. Absolutely disgusting.
I have used this service for several years now for various work related issues, as well as relationship questions and I can tell you the good the bad and the ugly with regard to their psychics. Bottom line, my go-to person for medium stuff (getting messages from family who has passed) is Psychic Sandra Lee. She can be an emotional read so be prepared. I would also recommend Wren, Clarissa and Jozette.
They are my favorites and although their timelines can differ, at times, they have all been very accurate for me. I have to say that I have had bad experiences with Angel Ashley and Psychic Capri and predictions did not come to fruition. I know that not all psychics connect with every client so I will give them the benefit of the doubt but I won't use those two again.
I spoke with 2 psychics at AskNow. I spoke with both Psychic Selena and Psychic Clarissa about my ex and wanted to know whether or not we would get back together. Selena said it would absolutely happen and Clarissa told me he was not on my life path and to walk away because there is another woman in his life. Now I'm mad at Selena because I believed her when I should have listened to Clarissa. It's been a year and I found out that he got married. I wasted so much time!
While searching the internet for "Real Psychics" or online psychics or accurate psychic readings, etc., I discovered scores upon scores of online psychic companies. Apparently it's now all the latest rage. What sparked my interest in psychics to begin with were shows like "Psychic Investigators" and "Sensing Murder." A genuine clairvoyant would most likely put their RARE ability to extremely excellent use and work with the F.B.I. or the police or families --working to find those who have gone missing or have been the victim of a horrific crime such as murder. Asknow and Keen have self-professed "psychics" charging anywhere from $13. per minute to $20 and up per minute. That's incomprehensible. Even $13 per minute is $780 per hour. There isn't a sensible, sane, rational, intelligent, self-respecting human being drawing breath, who would ever, under any circumstances, pay such an exorbitant amount of money to some faceless, nameless stranger on the internet, especially to someone with no actual, valid credentials or accredited degrees, just to "gamble" on the unlikely and remote chance that a broken relationship will be rekindled.
Has all of society gone completely mad? This online trend is as bad or worse than a compulsive gambler and an alcoholic put together. A real, genuine, walking, talking, breathing, natural-born clairvoyant will not bow to a company that tells them what they have to say in order to keep a person on the phone while the company pockets millions each year for delivering a lie.
People will not remain on a call beyond, "No, he doesn't love you and he isn't ever going to return." However, asknow tells their psychics to relay a great story, become a great story teller, teach them how to become a "love magnet," give the client homework because they gives them a deeper sense of purpose and keeps them on the phone. It's all about staying on the phone. It has nothing to do with any type of real prophecy. Most of the clients are calling for a fix not a reality check.
The rare individual who genuinely possesses the ability to see the future, isn't wasting their invaluable gift being manipulated by love-scorned, co-dependent women, demanding a pretty lie to feed their sick and broken soul.
It's unnatural, unreal, dysfunctional, bizarre, twisted, evil and sick to charge a troubled, hurting, suffering person by the minute to give readings on their disastrous financial situation or broken marriage or relationship or any other crisis they are facing. You can't possibly help anyone by pretending to have instant, immediate, answers, talking at the speed of light while draining their bank account.
If these asknow psychics were so amazing, so spectacular and "scary" accurate, worthy of $780 per hour, they wouldn't be working some internet phone line, reading fairytales to psychologically and emotionally impaired lonely hearts, they would be working for International Security, the Pentagon, the C.I.A., the F.B.I, the police and you would see them on television shows, finding bodies, criminals, missing aircrafts, terrorists and the like. All of those government agencies work with genuine psychics and those psychics mean business and do what they do really, really well.
In my quest to find a real psychic, I did. I wasn't trying to find out whether or not some jerkhole was going to ever divorce his wife and marry me, nor ask if some creep of a womanizing cheat was ever going to give up the boozing and want to reconcile with me, I wanted to know about a missing person, where they could be. An internet search lead me to a site called Tarotti.com and two of their psychics do work missing person cases, Savantace and Gale St John. They don't charge to work missing person cases, nor do they accept reward money if they are able to locate. That's what real psychics do and that's how a real clairvoyant uses their gifts.
She predicted I would reunite with my ex and she was so confident of it that she told me all I had to do was wait for the timeframe. The timeframe came and went, and while my ex did respond to me, it was a simple "please forgive me" and "take care". As in, goodbye.
Quite the contrary of the prediction that my ex and I are on a long life path together which is difficult to alter and so on.
I've learned some hard lessons in life this past year, and I can say without doubt that there is no reason whatsoever to consult a psychic.
